Talking About the Wines:
-Wine Spectator, Nov '18 gave 90 points to 2016 Giné Giné. "This red is dense yet lively, with floral and smoke notes that frame bright cherry and red plum flavors, backed by mineral, licorice and garrigue details. Bright acidity enlivens the silky texture, supported by well-integrated tannins. Cariñena and Garnacha. Drink now through 2028.”
-Wine & Spirits Magazine, Oct ’18 gave 92 points to 2016 Giné Giné, wine is listed “Year’s Best Priorat & Monstant Wines”. “Buil and Giné’s entry-level Priorat blends 40 percent garnacha and 60 percent cariñena from vineyards throughout the region. It’s exuberant and expansive, with notes of black pepper, and black fruits. It feels imposing, generously ripe, with soft touches of slate. This is the wine you need for baby lamb chops.”
-Wines & Spirits Magazine, October '17 gave 91 points to 2015 Giné Giné. "A blend of garnacha and carinena, it is intense in red fruit and exotic spice, with slight touches of slate. It needs at least five years to acheive its full complexity, but now, with its powerful texture..."
-International Wine Report, April '17 gave 91 points to 2015 Giné Giné. "... Forward and delicious aromas of black plum, black cherry, cardamom, and hints of milk chocolate. On the palate there are rich flavors of black cherry, roasted dates, French vanilla, and chocolate shavings. This continues to display decadent dark flavors while maintaining a strong mineral backbone. Delicious now and should drink beautifully well into the next decade."
-International Wine Report, Feb '16 gave 90 points to 2013 Giné Giné. "This Priorat bottling begins with an impressive range of aromas with red currant, red raspberry, lavender, and pipe tobacco. There are flavors of anise, red cherry, red raspberry, French vanilla, and hints of creme de cassis in this forward, yet structured wine. Very solid."
